Typed makes it painless to create and manage your blog

While a blog is still one of the easiest way to attract viewers to your content, it requires more effort than you’d think to start.

Typed is a service designed to get your blog up and running in under a minute. You can use your own domain name, pick from 11 attractive layout templates, and easily collaborate with others. The interface is so intuitive, you’ll have no excuses to leave content unpublished.

The platform is made by Realmac Software, the people behind the popular RapidWeaver site builder. Typed is just as easy to use, but it has more advanced features.

Multiple authors can work on the same site, and automatic search engine optimization is available for each article. Folks with coding skills can build custom designs via the Typed SDK. Like most blogging platforms, Typed has organizational features, like scheduling, tagging, and more.

Best of all, you get unlimited views for each post, even if one of them ends up going viral.

The Plus plan, usually priced at $19.95 per month, includes the option to set up three blogs and work with unlimited collaborators. Right now, you can get a whole year of service for a flat $30. That’s 87 percent off retail and includes free downloads for the Mac and iOS apps.
